Picked up a painting at an estate sale? Inherited a pearl necklace from grandma? Let experts determine what those treasures are worth at an “Antiques Roadshow”-type fundraiser Sept. 17-18 in the Anchorage Museum.
Appraisers from Bonhams auction house will provide values for participants’ fine art, furniture, Native American artifacts, books, toys, jewelry and more. Participants have an option to sell at auction if their items meet Bonhams’ requirements.
Bonhams, formerly Bonhams & Butterfields, was founded in 1793. It’s one of the world’s oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques.
Tickets for the consignment appraisal are $30. There are four sessions: Two on Saturday and two on Sunday. Tickets are for a particular session, but not a particular time. Ticket proceeds support the Anchorage Museum’s education programs and exhibitions. Advance tickets are required. Purchase tickets and find more information at www.anchoragemuseum.org.
The Anchorage Museum is the largest museum in Alaska and one of the top 10 most visited attractions in the state. The museum’s mission is to share and connect Alaska with the world through art, history and science. Learn more online at www.anchoragemuseum.org.
High-res jpegs are available in this online media room.
